Family Fun at the Castle

All activities listed below are included with your general admissions tickets – which also give you free returns for 12 months so you don’t have to miss out on anything!
Sunday 7 August
Come and meet the legendary hero of Nottingham Robin Hood @EzekialBone and hear ‘The Story of Nottingham Castle’.
Wednesday 10 August
Join Black Knight Historical on the Middle Bailey with some feathered friends! Come along and find out about the medieval arts of Falconry and Hawking, and have your photo taken with one of our raptors.
We also have some medieval characters around on that day and hopefully Knights in armour fighting for your entertainment (if not too hot!). Plus the usual arms and armour displays, try on a real helmet and hold a really sharp sword!
